The Impact of Annual Fund Gifts
Every gift is important and makes a difference. Thank you for supporting current and future generations of Carls.
- provides access to students by partially funding financial aid. Carleton meets the full demonstrated need of every accepted student.
- pays for academic resources, including faculty salaries, cutting edge technology, and facilities.
- offsets the total cost of a Carleton education. Full tuition covers less than half of what it really costs to attend Carleton. Gifts from alumni, parents and friends help make up the difference and provide each and every student with a “hidden scholarship.”
- demonstrates your belief in the liberal arts mission. Broad participation in the Annual Fund is looked at as a measure of satisfaction with the College. High rates of participation encourage grants from foundations and other sources.
